i got my lift done in jan of 2010... i finally had the swelling go down sometime in may of 2010. my ear canals swellled so i couldnt hear. when i complained they said it was ear wax. i told them my ears hurt when i laid on them. they said well dont lie on them. i suffered post operative trauma for a good four to five months, anxiety attacks lack of sleep due to the fact i relived the surgery over and over again as they do it without anesthesia. ears are sewn on to my face.
